Lizzie and Josh’s Big Day just happens to be what we dub, “A High Country slice of heaven.” I mean, could it really get any better (or any more picturesque) than this? Jaw-dropping views, majestic blooms by Shady Grove Gardens, and overflowing emotion between bride + groom make this day more than memorable. The couple, who met while attending Appalachian State University, traded vows at lovely The Lily Patch Farm, a venue that Lizzie said was so naturally beautiful (cue the fairytale flittering butterflies below!), it spoke for itself. Their celebration of love continued in style with a reception under the covered canopy of the The Lily Patch’s greenhouse, a more-than-fun twist on your typical tent. Oh High Country, bless you and all that you have to offer. And did you get a load of that dreamy floral-decked cake? Can we get a piece, Hallmark Cakes? Photographed by the wonderful Lieb Photographic (who just happened to be a former teacher of Lizzie’s, imagine that!) this wedding has us head over heels (ahem…sparkly embroidered TOMS)! Cheers to this darling duo!

One glance at these bridal portraits of sweet Anna at Overlook Barn and you’ll see why we are absolutely some smitten kittens over here. Anna, whose breathtaking e-session with now hubby Ezekiel was featured a few posts back, is in front of the lens again but this time as the leading lady. These wintery bridal portraits by talented shutterbug Kevyn Dixon Photography have such a lightness and whimsicalness about them and can we just say, that dress! Anna looks every bit the snow princess in her lacy stunner from Did Someone Say Party? We hope you enjoy flipping through these photos as much as we did. Here’s to pretty portraits and even prettier brides-to-be!

Alright, darlings. . . we’re going to help you cool down a bit from these piping hot summer temps by letting you in on some of our favorite images giving off all the fall feels. We are just over-the-moon excited about being able to finally share with you this batch of glorious captures from our 2017 editorial shoot both styled and photographed by the crazy, talented Michelle Lyerly. Set atop Phoenix Mountain, this styled shoot at Twickenham House boasted the talents of a bevy of the High Country’s most talented vendors… or what we like to call “friendors.” With Ugga Mugga Bakery the confectioners behind the drool-worthy dessert table, Fuschia Moss Floral Design amping up the flower power, and Miss Match Rentals providing an unforgettable autumnal tablescape for two, this fresh-air fete brings both the charm and the elegance you’d expect to complement those stunning mountain views. And how about that beautiful bohemian bride? Canvas Boone absolutely nailed that vibe, don’t you agree? Teamwork and good tidings, made seamless by creatives EventMaker and The Laurel Collective, made this an unforgettable experience and we hope they joy we had in making this all comes together brings a smile to your face!

Let’s get this holiday week started on a pretty note, shall we? Look no further than darling duo Courtney and John’s fall wedding extravaganza at The Inn at Crestwood. Big splashes of violet color, happy smiles, and breathtaking views ruled the day as Revival Photography captured beautiful moment after moment. Although rain clouds hindered original plans, forcing the ceremony inside Crestwood’s spacious main dining room, it’s safe to say that these nuptials couldn’t have been more perfect. The couple kept it personal by incorporating touches completely unique to themselves. For instance, Courtney, after being gifted a sleeve of her mother’s wedding dress, had her florist, Fuschia Moss Floral Design, wrap it around her stunning bridal bouquet as her, “something old.” A memorable touch, to say the least. And how about that daddy-daughter first look? If that isn’t the sweetest thing we have ever seen, we’ll be darned. Sending lots of love to this pair of cuties!
